Description of key information

The water-soluble fraction (WSF) of the structure-related Anthracene oil <50 ppm BaP, measured as TOC, was found to range between 3.5 and 7.0 mg C/L at ambient temperature (at a loading of 100 mg oil/L). The mean water solubility is estimated to be 5 mg C/L. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
5 mg/L
at the temperature of:
22 °C

Additional information

Further findings: 2 mg C/L (at 50 mg oil/L), 11.0 mg C/L (at 500 mg oil/L), and 18.0 mg C/L (at 1000 mg oil/L). It is assumed that the loading-dependent water solubilities of anthracene paste are in a similar range.
